SCCLA Member Forum Policies

Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association (“SCCLA”) has established a Member Forum for use by its members to enhance professional and social connections, request referrals, and share interesting events, or CLE opportunities.

Only SCCLA members may subscribe to the Listserv. To do so, register on the “My Profile” page on SCCLA’s website.

By subscribing to the Listserv, users agree to the following policy. SCCLA may modify this policy from time to time. If you have suggestions or concerns, please contact info@sccla.org.

1. Messages posted to the Listserv must be related to: promoting social, professional, or networking events; requests for professional references and referrals; and any other information related to the foregoing.

2. Don’t challenge or attack others. Listserv discussions are meant to stimulate conversation, and not create a contentious environment.

3. Do not post:

  • political messages that advocate a particular viewpoint.
  • advertisements of products or services unless such product or service is specifically sponsored or approved by SCCLA.
  • commercial messages or job postings (job postings can be emailed to media@sccla.org).
  • any message, data, information, text or other material ("Content") that is unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, lewd, harassing, harmful, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory, threatening, offensive, vulgar or otherwise injurious to third parties, or that would constitute or encourage a criminal offense, create any liability or violate any local, state, national, or international law or regulation. Listserv users may be held individually liable for any communications they send through the Listserv.
  • any harmful Content including without limitation, viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, zombies, cancel bots, or any other computer programming routines that may damage, interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, program, data or personal information.

4. SCCLA reserves the right, but does not assume the obligation to, monitor discussions on the Listserv and to investigate and report any violation of these guidelines. SCCLA may remove any user from the Listserv for violating these guidelines.

5. By using the Listserv, users agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless, SCCLA and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, and parent from and against all loss, claims, demands, causes of action, liabilities, expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees and costs arising from any claim arising out of or resulting from in whole or part any breach of these guidelines by the user or any omission or act taken by the user. In no event will SCCLA be responsible to the users for any indirect, consequential, special or punitive damages or losses users may incur in connection with the Listserv or any of the data or other materials transmitted through or residing on the Listserv, even if the SCCLA has been advised of the possibility of such damage or loss.

Listserv Etiquette

When a message or a reply is sent to the Listserv, the server immediately distributes it to all subscribers. The following guidelines are intended to make the use of the Listserv as valuable and productive as possible for all subscribers.

1. Use “reply all” sparingly. For example, if you reply with a message that simply says “thank you for the information,” agree with someone (e.g., “I agree”), or is a response to a request for a referral, do not reply to the entire group. Instead, reply only to the sender by sending your response directly to the e-mail address of the person who posted the message (e.g., hit "Reply," not "Reply All").

2. Please be polite, and do not post something to the Listserv that you would not say to a friend. Do not forward a personal email to the Listserv without the express permission of the original email's author.

3. Please keep your messages as short and concise as possible.

4. Please identify yourself. Please sign your message with your full name. This gives other SCCLA members the opportunity to consult directly with you on questions or issues that may have come up in discussion.

5. Please use a concise and clear subject line.

6. Please do not use auto-reply. If you will be out of the office using an automatic “out of office” message, please configure your “out of office” message to not respond to messages from sccla.org.

7. Please avoid large logos, tag lines, and messages to the extent possible (e.g., “Please consider the environment before printing this email”) used as part of a signature or otherwise included in an email posted to the Listserv.
